Retired CIA Agent Chase Brandon: Roswell UFO was Extraterrestrial; Contained Dead Aliens
A retired CIA agent who served in the Agency for 35 years claims that the UFO that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 “did not come from this planet” and contained the remains of extraterrestrial aliens.
“It was not a damn weather balloon — it was what it was billed when people first reported it,” Brandon, who served more than a quarter century in the CIA’s Clandestine Service, said in the weekend interview.
“It was a craft that clearly did not come from this planet, it crashed and I don’t doubt for a second that the use of the word ‘remains’ and ‘cadavers’ was exactly what people were talking about,” he added.
Brandon claims he stumbled upon the truth about Roswell while visiting a vaulted area in the CIA’s Langley, Virginia headquarters sometime in the mid-1990s.
“One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles that were mostly hand-scribbled summations of what was in the boxes. And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: Roswell,” he told the Huffington Post.
“I took the box down, lifted the lid up, rummaged around inside it, put the box back on the shelf and said, ‘My god, it really happened!’”
He says he saw “some written material and some photographs, and that’s all I will ever say to anybody about the contents of that box.”
“But it absolutely, for me, was the single validating moment that everything I had believed, and knew that so many other people believed had happened, truly was what occurred,” he added.
Brandon’s account varies wildly from the official narrative of the Roswell incident. When an unidentified object crashed at a ranch near Roswell on July 8, 1947, Roswell Army Air Field public information officer Walter Haut announced that the military had captured a “crashed flying disk.” The local paper, the Roswell Daily Record, reported this story on the front page. But the next day, Eighth Air Force commander Gen. Roger Ramey said that what had really been recovered was a downed weather balloon.
Multiple government investigations concluded that the material recovered near Roswell originated from a balloon that was part of Project Mogul, a secret government program in which high-altitude balloons were used to monitor sound waves resulting from potential Soviet atomic bomb testing.
But Brandon’s claims are sure to add fuel to the fire of what is arguably the most widespread conspiracy theory in modern history. There are, however, red flags surrounding his claims. First, Brandon has recently published and is currently promoting his book, “The Cryptos Conundrum,” a science fiction yarn that includes contact between humans and space aliens.
Also, why would the former CIA agent disclose such shocking information, even while saying he won’t go into a detailed description of what he saw in that box at Langley? It simply dosen’t make sense for someone who claims he is ever-mindful of his duty to protect matters of national security to divulge information that directly contradicts the government’s official narrative of events at Roswell.
